insanedachshund Terastodon is strictly better than Meteor Golem , that sounds like a great substitution.

Here are some suggested cuts

Recommended Cuts

Creatures

Blightsteel Colossus - Curve reasons

Graveblade Marauder - Cute but effect probably isn't good enough

Hamletback Goliath - Curve reasons

Khenra Eternal - Bad card basically. Though we want this slot to be at that mana cost

Khenra Scrapper - Again. We want aggressive cards like this but we can do better

Saskia the Unyielding - Big target on your head. Colour intensive. Not a warrior

Savage Knuckleblade - Colour intensive

Taurean Mauler - Doesn't work towards our game plan. Doesn't trigger off combat damage doesn't buff others.

Tenacious Dead - Just bad

Tolsimir Wolfblood - Buff isn't universal and its expensive

Zhur-Taa Druid - We want mana dorks. But only taps for green and its colour intensive to cast.

Maybe Cuts Or Later Cuts

Thunderfoot Baloth - Expensive but ok effect.

Hellkite Charger - Maybe cut. We already have access to this effect at cheaper cost

Zurgo Helmsmasher - He's good. But doesn't help the rest of the game plan

Sorceries

Maybe Cut

Clan Defiance - Doesn't impact the board enough to make us win the game.

Lavalanche - Effect we want but possible to find cheaper?

Enchantment

Fires of Yavimaya - Replace with Rhythm of the Wild

Instant

Artifact Mutation && Aura Mutation - Change with generic artifact or enchantment removal

Crackling Doom - Doesn't do enough

Artifact

Oketra's Monument - Doesn't trigger enough and the mana reduction isn't relevant enough

Hi PartyJ! I dunno how to tag your name so I came here to post my reply. First of all, thank you for appreciating my deck. Its my favorite because of how unique the mechanic and how unpopular the commander is. I think it has less than 200 decks in edhrec. Hallar can surprise you in so many ways.

Regarding my versions of Hallar, these were my experiences.

My first few iterations of him was putting so much +1/+1 counters and heavily protected him with hexproof stuff. The problem I encountered with this build was too much protection and not much kickers.

So I readjusted him to adding more kicker spells and less protection. But the problem here was, some kicker spells are simply inefficient and triggering Hallar turn by turn was quite putting a target on you.

After plenty more iterations, I settled on my current build now, I'm still trying out Panharmonicon though. My main goal is to approach multiple wincons at the same time, which is not very hard with Hallar as your commander.

Wincon 1: To burn opponents at the same time through, Chandra's Ignition and/or multiple cheap kicker spells while having a bunch of counters on Hallar.

Wincon 2: Poison opponents using Grafted Exoskeleton on Hallar (can work with the ignition too), Firebrand Archer , Squallmonger , or Zhur-Taa Druid .

Wincon 3: Deal commander damage through having trample and lots of counters. Poison works here too.

Things to note though :

  • Properly time your instant kickers so that you can somehow make the most of Hallar before a boardwipe or a spot removal.
  • Have ways to draw more cards, my favorites are Keen Sense and Snake Umbra because you can put them on creatures in "wincon 2" and still draw.

I hope I was able to help you with your future Hallar Deck. :)

Zhur-Taa Druid : Best mana dork in R/G and there's no reason not to run it.

Fires of Yavimaya & Ogre Battledriver : Haste makes this deck so much faster.

I have a very similar deck using Nikya of the Old Ways as commander, so I could go on with many more creatures I've found since the playstyles of the two commanders are similar. In general I would try checking out some more creatures with bloodrush (i.e. Skarrg Goliath ). I've found this ability makes the deck less predictable and is a viable win con with commander damage.

Zhur-Taa Druid for some spicey mana? Might as well get a foil one

The most you can do once you start top decking is 3 damage per turn... You need draw engines dude.

Keen Sense and Snake Umbra create a pseudo infinite combo with your commander, as it says "damage" not "combat damage", every bolt to your opponents face draws you a card. They both work with Zhur-Taa Druid as well, letting you draw as many cards as you have opponents each time it taps for mana.

Gratuitous Violence doubles the damage of your bolts. Abundance would allow you to draw a non-land when you have a hand full of lands and no commander out. It makes a combo with Sylvan Library (which is not budget) that lets you draw 3 cards of the type of your choice at the beginning of each turn. Ramunap Excavator would add a lot of value. Boundless Realms would be stupid good in here with all those basics. A future upgrade might be to build around Valakut, the Molten Pinnacle . Praetor's Counsel returns your hold yard to your hand, so if it's full of lands you basically win the game.

Anyways, just some advice. I also run a Borborygmos Commander list. I only run 39 lands, so my style is a bit different than yours, but you I run all of the aforementioned cards, so you might find some ideas.

Hello, I thought I would lend a hand as much as I can for now. I will try to help more later tonight when i'm done with school/work. These cards below represent what I think you should cut, unfortunately however I don't have the time to write out in detail why I think all of these 13 cards should be cut currently, but I'm sure you can figure out some and I can try to explain these choices more later if need be.

Myojin of Infinite Rage , Carnage Tyrant , Yeva, Nature's Herald , Splendid Reclamation , Sekki, Seasons' Guide , Ramunap Excavator , Garruk's Horde , Lifeline , Zhur-Taa Druid , Praetor's Counsel , Radha, Heir to Keld , Leyline of Lifeforce , and Loaming Shaman .

As I have said, I will try to be of help later on when I can, but I do hope for now some of this is of help to you!
